Hi, Richie.

I followed your advice and read +38.2v at D5 and -19v at D7

38.2 is an expected measurement. It seems that you have something pulling the negative rail voltage down.

Hi, Ritchie.

After recapping, I still read -19v at D7 and VR1 output reads -37.9VDC instead of -18V. I replaced the VR1 LM337 and recapped C70 (22mf 25V), which was blown. R119 and D12 (resistor) are now running hot.

Can you or any other Cyrus experts kindly direct me to probable source of the problem? Many thanks!

Hi...Mark

Thank you for your immediate reply to my mail....is there any chance to rectify this issue .i have changed the main capacitors, few 22 mfd 50v, 100 mfd 50v, but this issue is only once we switched off the amplifier after few minutes or few hours. kindly help me mark...also i suspect the 470 mfd 6v bipolar under the ribbon cable but the same is not available here in india.

I know what you mean. I don't think anything is broken as my amp has always done this. You could connect a relay at the outputs of the amp to disconnect the speakers after the amp is switched off. I have never found it a problem.
